This one of the most entertaining stories I’ve read in awhile. In preparation for this year’s Confederations Cup and next year’s FIFA World Cup, Brazilian prostitutes have begun taking free English classes to help lure customers due to expected mass increase in tourists in the next year. Cida Vieira, president of the Association of Prostitutes in the city of Belo Horizonte, said today that 20 prostitutes have already signed up for the courses and she expects at least 300 of the group’s 4,000 members to follow.
“It will be important for the girls who will be able to use English to let their clients know what they are charging and learn about what turns them on,” Vieira said by telephone.
To all the men out there planning on visiting Brazil in the upcoming year, be aware of STD‘s and Adam’s apples. Prostitution is legal in Brazil by the way.
